On Industrialization and Urbanization – Comparing ‘Satanstoe’ and ‘The Mighty Burke’ ‘Satanstoe’ is set in the early 1900s, while ‘The Mighty Burke’ is set in the late 1900s.

It is well described how Satanstoe looked like: a lot of farmland, a couple of small, but stable buildings made of stone, and it lies directly at the sea (7-9). But it is also mentioned that outside of Satanstoe, it looked different: “We happened to be in a part of Westchester in which were none of the very large estates” (9), which implicates that outside of Satanstoe there were houses much larger than the ones on the peninsula. But it is still safe to assume that there were not that many buildings in the Bronx overall,
